Actually, Wilkerson isn't the Nats OF having the worst time of it lately.
OPS in September:
Church: 0.625 (only 15 PAs)
I can see the argument for playing Byrd, but it should be at the expense of Church or Guillen if you're arguing from a "recent performance" perspective. Personally, I'd be playing Byrd at the expense of Wilson, from the point of view that Wilson isn't going to help the franchise in the future; Byrd might. ive him a 2 week trial in CF to see what he can do.
